Positive Reviews

Location is very convenient indeed

Having the airport a mere four miles away is very handy, especially when you've got the hotel's free shuttle service to call on. Being right next to Highway 99 and less than a half-hour from I-5 is helpful too.

Pool is the perfect place to cool off

It's not a big pool by any measure but that doesn't matter. When it comes to cooling off the effects of the beaming California sun, there really is nothing better than kicking back in ‘your' own little pool…

Complimentary breakfast is a nice touch

Whilst it may not be enough to fill you up, the juice, coffee, cereal, donuts and biscuits & gravy provided is free and, most of the time, pretty tasty. They even have waffles that you can make yourself. Not bad at all.

Negative Reviews

Guest rooms aren't the best

Some guests have been less than impressed by the Bakersfield Vagabond Inn North's accommodations. Lumpy mattresses, broken furniture, grubby bathrooms and worn linens have all been by highlighted by disgruntled visitors.

Restful sleep isn't guaranteed

Loud, temperamental A/C units and noisy traffic from the nearby highway can make sleeping at night a challenge sometimes. In addition, the wood floors often radiate noise, so you're likely to hear those staying above you scuttling around in the early hours if they have an early start…

Customer service is lacking a little

Numerous guests have commented that the hotel's customer-facing employees have a tendency to be rather negative and, in some cases, even quite rude. Perhaps a crash course in basic hospitality is a little overdue..?
